I am a postdoctoral research fellow in Economics at the University of Nottingham (UoN). I am also a member of the Network for Integrated Behavioural Sciences (NIBS) and of the Centre for Decision research and Experimental economics (CeDEx).

My main focus has so far been in behavioural and experimental economics and more specifically in decisions under risk and/or uncertainty. My research involves experiments seeking to explore how different modes of information-acquisition can influence risky preferences and behaviour in social dilemmas. I am also very interested in the origins behind the discrepancy between decisions from description and decisions from experience, searching for efficient ways of eliciting preferences as well as field experiments that seek to test behavioural interventions aiming to steer people towards better decisions.
